Software startup, Anvil, announced an extension of its web app development, allowing Python developers to design, build, and ship web apps. 

By making its runtime engine open source, developers who know the Python language can now choose to deploy their apps on their own machines, or on embedded or specialized Internet of Things (IoT) devices, as well as within their employer's or Anvil's clouds.

Anvil's development environment combines coding with performance, allowing the creation of full stack web apps. Bringing RAD tools like Visual Basic to the modern web. The new open source App Server allows them to export an app and run it anywhere, without relying on the Anvil cloud or any internet connection.
